Gardens and Collections Designed By Our Garden Experts

There are many points to consider when designing a garden. Color, mature plant height and width, bloom times, and the sunlight in your garden are all factors to consider. No wonder so many of us could use a hand! Here's how one of our in-house designers found her starting point:

"First and foremost, I started with plants that have a proven track record of success in our customers' gardens. From a design perspective, I wanted varieties that grow well with each other and produce a harmonious overall design when they reach maturity - like you might see in a magazine. It was also important to choose flowers that are easy to grow for any type of gardener, no matter their skill level."


Here are some additional benefits that our Pre-Planned Gardens and Collections offer:

  • Take the guesswork out of garden design with plants that look great and grow in harmony together
  • Flowers bloom in succession throughout the season to provide long-lasting color
  • Plant spacing and placement is already carefully calculated, based upon mature height and width
  • Plus, purchasing a Garden or Collection will typically save you money, compared to buying plants individually!
 

Garden Maps Make All the Difference

While both Pre-Planned Gardens and Collections offer all the benefits above, one feature that sets Pre-Planned Gardens apart (and that we're most excited about) is our awesome Garden Maps. Each Pre-Planned Garden comes with full planting instructions and a diagram with the optimal layout for your plants. This makes it easy to imagine the garden in your landscape and takes more of the guesswork out of planting itself. 

We are excited to offer a great selection of Pre-Planned Gardens to choose from, with each offering a solution for differing landscapes and garden goals. You'll find gardens for shady areas, woodland spaces, bright and sunny areas, and for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds, and more.

 

Whichever Pre-Planned Garden or Collection you choose, we are there with you every step of the way! As always, we invite you to share your experiences and gardening photos with us, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns about your garden. Happy Gardening!
